Regular attendance at school promotes pupil well-being, maximises progress in learning and helps pupils reach their potential. The attendance pattern for all children is monitored weekly with the school seeking to work actively with parents to ensure a regular pattern is maintained.
Good attendance is fundamental to a successful and fulfilling school experience. It is our duty to promote 100% attendance for all children. For our children to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered it is vital that our pupils are at school, on time, every day the school is open, unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
All children have the right to an education and we have put in place appropriate procedures to support this. We believe that the most important factor in promoting good attendance is development of positive attitudes towards school and learning.

|10 mins late each day = 6.9 days lost a year||Attendance of 95% = 10 days absent a year|
|15 mins late each day = 10.3 days lost a year||Attendance of 90% = 20 days absent a year|
|20 mins late each day = 13.8 days lost a year||Attendance of 85% = 30 days absent a year|
